QB Burrow Joins 2015 Class

Ohio State might have reignited its recruiting momentum Tuesday afternoon in the form of a commitment from four-star quarterback Joey Burrow of The Plains, Ohio. Burrow becomes OSU's first commitment since February.

Ohio State earned its first verbal commitment since February on Tuesday afternoon when four-star quarterback Joey Burrow gave his pledge to the Buckeyes.

Burrow has burst onto the scene the past few months after posting some standout numbers in high school at The Plains (Ohio) Athens. Burrow has already thrown 94 TD and 6,971 yards in his high school career, per the Athens Post. His father, Jimmy Burrow, is the assistant head coach and defensive coordinator at Ohio University.

Recently, Burrow told Scout that things had picked up with Ohio State, and he was planning to attend the NFTC and Elite 11 workouts in Columbus this upcoming weekend.

Burrow is the No. 26 quarterback in the class according to Scout and checks in at 6-4, 190 pounds. He could be just one of two pledges the Buckeyes take at quarterback with senior Braxton Miller set to play his final season in 2014.

Burrow, who could end up the top-rated Ohio quarterback in the class and also held offers from Kentucky, Maryland and Minnesota, joins Canton McKinley athlete Eric Glover-Williams and Cocoa, Fla., corner Jamel Dean in the 2015 class.

Both of those players committed to OSU during the calendar year 2013. Florida safety Ben Edwards pledged to OSU on Feb. 11 but since decommitted and flipped his pledge to Auburn.
